By W. S, WALLACE Lecturer in History at McMaster University, Toronto. The parliamentary floor drops like a bird that has, been shot in. full flight. The Speaker or the chairman may ignore -the motion in' which case "the Treasury Bench will and "I beg looks annoyed. B.ut if the motion is accepted, the Speaker rises and says: "The question is that the question .be now while the .Opposition orator smile's baclowith a helpless., look at the Ladies Gallery and his friends, attach the first bar of the well-known, par- liamentary chorus "Gag gag." In 1SS7 another variety of ttoe clo- sure was adopted, a variety known by the--picturesque name of the "guillo- tine." The closure rale of 18S7 was found inadequate in the case of a com- plicated measure like the Irish Crimes Act, the clauses of which had to be passed separately; and so the govern- ment moved that at ten" o'clock on June-17th the chairman should with- out further debate put ail questions try' press, has. produced such, a long- necessary, to bring the committee position at "Ottawa- this r session ,-hav.e given -threats of-introduction of closure." Some recent re- marks of" Sir Wilfrid Laurier- in the House, can only be Interpretted. in this light; and several government news- papers bav.e openly advocated such a measure. Nor.could it. scid if the- closure were adopted, that .Canada .would be'rushing in where angels fear to tread.

People from even part of the Stake were present, an when it is understood that this mean all the territory within a radius of on 'hundred miles of Raymond, it show that the occasion was a very Irapon ant one. These conferences are helc lour times a year.-and the recent on was graced by the presence-of twi members of the- Twelve Apostles, iu the persons of Nyrum >M. Smith, son jof President Joseph F. Smith, an i Anthony W. Ivans. j Four spirited and well i sessions were held, the principal fea 'ture of them being-the forceful doc [trinal discourses by the visiting lead ers and local authorities. President Theo. Brandley, of Stir ling, gave a very favorable report o the condition of the Stake, saying tha the church affairs were conduct ed in a most harmonious manner bj those holding the various positions o trust. On Saturday evening a priest hood meeting was held. These ses sions are always of a private natur as matters of deep moment are very often discussed relative to the eccles iastlcal welfare of the people. On Sunday afternoon the largest at tended session -by. far was held. The large chapel was crowded to its iit most capacity, many .being forced to stand. Besides several gospel serin oas the Apostles, Gie general and local authorities of. the church were presented and sustained unanimously President Joseph F. Smith, his coun sellers, the Twelve Apostles and the Presiding Patriarch were all sustained as prophets, seers and revelators. 0 W. Snow was called and set apart, bj Apostle Smith as second counsellor to Stake President H. S. Allen. The va cancy was caused >by the death of the late Win. A.. Redd.

This form of motion-makes the sub- mission'of, amendments to a given bill impossible; the clauses must be voted on as tihey stand at-a specified hour. How this arrangement will work out it is perhaps premature to prophesy. On the whole, the closure has work- ed in England not unfairly. Undoubt- edly, owing to the pressure' of busi- ness in the Imperial Parliament, it is more urgent and necessary there than in Canada. But it might be worth trying as an experiment in Can- to any pending measure was .urgent. This -was the- first form of closure, because the resolution was put forth- with .without debate, and if carried iv. sufficient majority was 'to vest the "Speaker, for the purpose of proceeding specific measure, all powers of the House for the regulation of business. It was not until 1888, however that the closure assumed its present form. The closure -rule of 1887, amended slightly in 1SSS, provides that any ber may claim to move that the ques- tion pending may be now. p.ut, "and un- less it sb'a.11 appear to the chair that such a motion is an abuse of the rules of the House or an infringement of the rights .of the it; shall-be put forthwith.'
